Happy Halloween, everyone! Heather Leopard is here with a spooktacular Trick or Treat scrapbooking layout today. My daughter has been wearing her Halloween costume every day since we got it a few weeks ago. She asked if she could try out the bow and arrow so we headed out to the yard and what do you know? This toy set actually worked. I grabbed my camera real quick and took a few action shots. I just loved this one where she looked up at me so I had to scrap it.
Trick or Treat scrapbooking layout supplies:
Take a look at how the Trick or Treat scrapbooking layout came together
Gather your favorite Midnight Haunting ot combination of Halloween supplies. I used at least 6 different patterned papers, maybe even more, plus stickers and my electronic die cutting machine.
Make a super-sized Trick or Treat statement using your favorite font, or download one from your cutting machine’s store, like I did. Design the page in the die cut software to make sure everything fits just right and then you can do one of two things…..1, cut the letters from the background paper or 2, cut each letter from your patterned paper of choice. I chose option 1.
After choosing option 1, I hand cut papers to add to the back of the page, shifting them around until I felt the patterns were evenly distributed. You can see that I just have them placed under each letter. I’ll trim them up as I adhere them to the back of the paper.
Make it stand out!
I wanted the words to POP so I traced around each of the letters and what a difference that made!
Since I was doing a Halloween layout about my Archer Girl, I added a fun arrow-like design to the page, where there was a big open gap. It filled the space perfectly and really tied the photo better to the page. The arrow I selected had openings in the feather tips so I added a couple of patterns there too.
Add your finishing touches
Next, I added my photo and embellishments, placing a few butterflies and stars scattered here and there.
So, this Halloween, will you ask her for an archery trick or give her a treat?
